Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western Island Palms and Marina Hotel
Better than the Three Best Westernsfrom newthings
It was quiet, however, some 20-somethings had a loud party in one of the rooms and my husband went outside and politely told them to quiet it down which they did.
The room was fine with one big exception: THe fitted Sheet on the bed was too big for the matress and so it did not fit properly. When we lowered the sheets and blanket before we went to sleep, the whole bed came apart and it became worse and worse throughout the night. This was also a problem in the previous Best Western we stayed at. Their fitted sheets don't match the size of the mattress.
Otherwise, the marina was lovely - the restaurant food was ok, the place was clean and it looked much better than most of the run of the mill Best Westerns on the main roads.
We have had better experiences here. But, we will be back.from A TripAdvisor Member
We have experienced a more pleasurable time in the past, but we will be back. We also really like Humphrey’s Inn two hotels down, I would venture to say I like Humphrey’s better. Both are nice places. Humphrey’s seems more tropical to me with a much larger (warmer) pool.
Very disappointingfrom meaveg
I stayed at the Island Palms because it got pretty good reviews. When I arrived I was really disappointed. It's very old. Big spill stains on the carpet. Worn bedspreads. Maybe I wouldn't have minded if I was spending $50 - 80 a night but at $160. it's ridiculous.
The grounds could be a lot prettier but obviously there's no gardner or groundsman.
Upon checking out I was really surprised to see that they charged us for the morning paper they put outside our door. Also after having our room cleaned we were left with no large towels and no additional T.P.
The waitress we had for breakfast needs to find a job where she's not working with the public.
The best part about staying here were the ducks who came to our door in the morning for breakfast.
I do not recommend staying here unless you get a really really good rate.
Great deal and delicious foodfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Very nice!from A TripAdvisor Member
this place is stuck in a time warp!from Ternana
Our room was dark, decorated by a visually impared decorator from the '50's and bloody noisy with passing trucks, trollies et al from 5 am on. The small pool area was dominated by screaming kids.
On the plus side the staff were helpful and very pleasant. The small bar area was OK for a quick beer.
Being from out of town we also asked the front desk for a good local restaruant, we were directed to the 'Red Sails' about 1 mile away, avoid this like the plauge people, unless you enjoy a menu dominated by deep fat fried food served on plastic plates and plastic glasses and a ''15% service charge added to your bill for convenience''. Although it does look out on to a working harbour.
Stay as the Shelter Island Inn Insteadfrom A TripAdvisor Member
What a paradise!from A TripAdvisor Member
Beautiful rooms and Resort....from A TripAdvisor Member
The reason why I only gave it three out of five was due to the fact that the restaurant and its staff were very unhelpful.
The day we arrived we ate a horrible meal there. Because, we wanted to give it another chance we ordered room service for breakfast. The food was cold, the milk was warm and they forgot the toast. We ordered again and it was never brought. They also charge a 15% service charge for the horrible service
Eat somewhere else and not at the Blue Wave or whatever it's called, but enjoy the view.
Beautiful view and a clean roomfrom Vixkix69
Yes,having the frig in the bathroom WAS a little weird but it was ok.
The view was GREAT and the bay was also near by,in front of the hotel.GORGEOUS!!!
Every morning,I opened the blinds to that blue marina at my window/backdoor,full of boats and ducks.Ducks came to my door.
If you want a great view to wake up to [not necesarrily a luxury room] and a super cleaning staff,then this may be the place for you.It's close to everything [if you have a car].
I got a great rate price for it at --------------------------------- Thanks!!
